COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawny red and full of malt and hops, Full Moon’s unique flavor quells your palate’s longing for something truly distinctive. Marrying the smooth sweetness of malted rye and barley, the ale’s rich body is complemented by ample helpings of American hops. The culmination of our efforts is an assertive American pale ale, a hop lovers dream.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2004
draught. Nose is fruity. Notes of grape, currants, and straw come through. Finish is slightly bitter. This would make a good sesion beer. Not bad.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - APR 11, 2004
Fresh hop nose with a hint of apricots, orangy amber color, foamy head - dissappating quickly. Substantial malt base - cookie-like flavor with citrusy tones. Bad paper-like aftertaste following the bitter finish. Full mouth feel. Thanks, fly!

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 Very good texas beer. Great rich malts and just the right amount of hops to balance this above avg., beer. Finish is very smooth.

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Orange colored, liveley carbonation. Nearly no head. Great furity, apricot nose. Malte tones too. First medium hoppy kick, than kind of weak hops and apricot taste.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Hazy dark golden appearence, fresh spring-like nose. Very drinkable and balanced, has a somewhat bitter finish. I don't know if I taste the rye, maybe it's just adding to the malt backbone. Nice session ale (if I had more!) Thanks to fly.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 1, 2004
bottle-purchased at Grapevine market, Austin, TX-pours a fairly cloudy copper hue with medium carbonation cascading the entire glass from top to bottom. subtle white head that was very smooth, like a nitro pour. awesome lacing the entire time of the sampling. flavor is very interesting and unique. this is a mix of american spicy hops and english hops that give this brew great balance. The Rye malt gives this a very unique bready bitterness. This seems more like an ESB than a pale. A very unique brew that i think is very under-rated!

Sediment? Is that stuff supposed to be in there, or is it a mistake? After the others, this beer doesn't seem too bad, so far. Aroma okay, mostly bready. Flavor is mostly hoppy. Overall, pretty good.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 I loved this beer, good stuff. This is what an ale should taste like. Very smooth yet it does indeed taste like beer. The only problem with this beer is that it does not have a full palate, but nevertheless is very drinkable and tasty.

Damn, this is a Fact: Real Ale Beers pour Real BIG Head!
A pale golden / amber body with a freaking huge cream colored head, lots of tiny partials floating around in the brew. The nose is fairly floral, smells more like English hops, notes of spruce, caramel, and …. steamed squash? The flavor is a bit metallic and astringent, notes of musty grapefruit, very nice flexible palate though.
Overall it's different, and it is rather enjoyable.
Thanks again FLY, it was very excellent of you to give me this brew to sample.

I enjoyed this Texas brew. Didn't appear to be filtered. A distinctive rye ale that had a substantial dose of Cascade hops accented with a full malt body. The flavor comes on strong and fast and lingers for a while. Good enough for a second look. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat. Well done.
